Freya has it in for her new neighbour even before they meet; she’s made up her mind about the person and the business they open next door to her shop and she’s nothing but hostile when they do meet despite Lily’s best efforts to be friendly. There are reasons behind Freya’s judgements that eventually are revealed but until then she struck me as a very unlikeable and unsympathetic character, her actions petty and childish. I much preferred Lily and the other cast of characters (who are a colorful bunch of people) over Freya. There is some wonderful humor in the story and plenty of drama with the clashes Freya is keen to have with Lily at every opportunity. The town in Australia where the story is set has an idyllic feel to it and its quirky inhabitants enliven the story further.
If you’re looking for some laughs and drama along with a slow burn romance and well written relationships between women, give this book a read. For more good lesbian romance reading, check out the other books in the Window Shopping Collection as well as Cheyenne Blue’s ‘Girl Meets Girl’ series.
I received an advance reading copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This story is told in third person and from both heroine’s point of views. Given both Freya and Lily are such complex characters, it’s the perfect style of narration.
I got to know both ladies extremely well, and sure, Freya is a prickly character but I understood her, and could see that beneath the hard exterior she was a good person. I’m so so happy Lily recognized that in Freya as well. I get that a number of people possibly won’t understand why Lily persevered, I love that she did, bless her.
Freya’s friend, Carly, plays a big part in this story. I liked her initially but then she irked me. At times, I felt like she played Freya off against Lily and vice versa. I could’ve done without the saga between her and Andy. It rubbed me the wrong way and for reasons I can’t go into without spoilers.
I loved the setting, Aussie, and appreciated reading terms I’m familiar with.
A day after finishing this book, I picked it up wanting to read more, only to remember I’d already turned the last page. The fact these ladies got under my skin – they’re real, I swear – is what made this story a winner for me.
Very enjoyable read indeed.
I loved Lily. She is so determined and hopeful, she refuses to let Freya take her joy. As the story progresses Ms Blue does a great job showing how and why Freya is sometimes so aloof and closed off. I really enjoyed watching Freya grow as she questioned and re-evaluate herself and her life as she sought her own joy. The ending was wonderful, just as it should be. Thanks Ms Blue!!
Cheyenne Blue managed to write a love story that at times seemed doomed due to Freya’s attitude. She succeeded in keeping me glued to the page by always giving a glimmer of hope that things just might work out. She let the reader see that Freya had reasons for being so closed up and therefore I found her redeemable. She hit the right notes emotionally and made me root for Lily and Freya. I really liked their friend Carly and her problems gave an extra dimension to the story. A thoroughly enjoyable read that I highly recommend.
I was given this ARC by Ylva Publishing in return for an honest review.
